Art2Action creates, develops, produces and presents original theatre, interdisciplinary performances, performative acts and progressive cultural organizing. We support women artists, artists of color, queer or trans* artists, and creative allies. We are dedicated to these values, and hold them to be of equal importance: Cultural Equity & Aesthetic Innovation, Artistic Quality & Community Value, Performativity & Impact.
Whether developing new work, touring, or acting as a presenter, community process and meaningful engagement is central to all our work. As a mission-driven, artist-led organization, we increase capacity, extend and deepen our impact through multi-year partnerships with local and national institutions, organizations and networks.
Art2Action is incorporated in the State of New York, and the State of Florida. As a presenter, we work closely with our Tampa partners, from the University of South Florida (USF) to the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, to local businesses and community service organizations. Presenting venues vary in size and technical capacity, from 50–500 seats; identifying the appropriate partners for each residency is key to our process.
Not all residencies require a public performance. Art2Action also supports new work in development by offering writing, exploration or rehearsal residencies at our *new* in-house studio, “The Artists Enclave,” which features a 19×21 studio with a sprung wood dance floor. (For individual artists or small groups, by invitation only).
